Wicked Pictures, Third Degree Films File BitTorrent Suits

LOS ANGELES — Just three porn BitTorrent lawsuits were filed in the past week, according to court records.

On Monday, Wicked Pictures files suit against 87 unnamed John Doe defendants who are said to have downloaded the studio's content illegally. That suit was filed in Washington, D.C.

Last week, Third Degree Films filed two suits — both in Florida — against 375 Does in one suit and 259 in the other.

The suits, all seeking $150,000 per Doe in damages, ask for the court's permission to order Internet service providers identify the alleged copyright infringers.
